The Kenneth Williams Letters Reviews
I am bit biased but I loved this book. He is so cleaver with his use of the English language and the way he uses them to scorn or praise. Loved it.
What a brilliant, witty, infuriating, intelligent man he was.I've read The Diaries several times and find them endlessly fascinating, so i turned to The Letters with great interest. Here i found some captivating missives and some serious, intellectual ones; demonstrating a man who delighted in a complex, abstract concept and poetry as much as a saucy joke.In fact I think I've discovered more poetry through reading Mr Williams than anywhere else.I recommend this book, especially if you're a fan. If you're not and only know of him as the one with the funny voice from the "Carry On" films, then DEFINITELY read this.
My version is actually a bloody great hardback and called the diaries not the letters. I got this pretty much as soon as it was released and it told a lot of his secrets. I loved at his comments on other celebrities-he could be very cutting indeed !
Kenneth Williams loved writing letters and it’s great that so many of them survived.Following on from the Kenneth Williams Diaries this book gives further insight into the mind and world of the great man.
Well worth having, these show Kenneth Williams in a different light to his diaries. Erudite and pleasant in turn and rarely showing his camp stage persona.
It was ok but I felt it was stretching the diaries which were excellent. The problem with letters is you only see one side of the correspondence
